How did everyone survive Halloween? We ended up getting about 32 kids which is a reduced number. Guess everyone is growing up! I ended up with a little more candy that ought to stay in the house, so I’ll be donating it somewhere… soon! I need it gone… those cheezies get me every time. How did you make out?
In other news, I wasn’t sure what to do about fall. I was just gonna let it pass on by while I fired up Christmas, but I honestly don’t want it up yet! So I decided to gitter done..
…and in an afternoon, I created quite the little cozy living room! I have to admit, I’m so glad I made the push to do it. If nothing else, it’ll hopefully keep the decorations boxed for a little while longer… LOL
That said, I’ll be doing a mix of fall and Christmas over November so there’s something for everyone.
Based on what you guys are up to, it isn’t to early for Christmas projects though! They are starting to come out in full force, as you can see by some of these AMAZING features from last week’s party…
Gasp… how did I not know how adorable live edged plaques would make for the cutest of mini Christmas signs? Carlene, you are a sign stencil genius!

These darling trees came from a surprise source… and they are perfect for all winter long with these beautiful neutral tones! Click to read the wonderful tutorial.
Can you even?! Best to head over to Susan’s place and see how she made this one… and see it illuminated too! Oh yes, it indeed does! Adorable!
I’m glad this shed needed a makeover because now we get to enjoy it lookin’ all smart and sharp in that gorgeous forest decked out with just the right sign message!
